Greetings Falcon Family!
It is our hope that this letter finds you doing well. As a team of educators, we have a significant void in our lives that is filled with students walking in our hallways and the sound of learning taking place. Please know that we miss your student, we miss seeing parents, and we cannot wait to get back to business-as-usual.
Starting Monday morning, learning at LDMS is going to take on a new look. LDMS@Home will be the new online learning platform accessible through the district (ldisd.net) and campus websites.
LDMS@Home will replace current teacher webpages and will be updated by 6:00 p.m. on Sunday night for the following week. LDMS@Home is organized by department > grade level > teacher. Students and Parents will need to access each teacher’s LDMS@Home site to collect the learning activities for the week. Each content area will be posting three learning activities each week. Each learning activity is designed to take about 20 minutes to complete, and there will be options that may or may not require technology. For your convenience, there is a tutorial video on the LDMS@Home homepage to learn how to navigate LDMS@Home.
To create consistency across the campus, all activities will be posted as Google Slides (like Powerpoints for those that are more familiar with Microsoft) and have similar organization. On each Slide Deck, there is a learning activity that students will need to complete, and students will then submit their learning evidence on a Google Form that can be found on every page of the LDMS@Home site. Each teacher has provided a page of additional resources for those students that would like the opportunity to access activities that will provide refinement or enrichment of skills.
Our goal is to make LDMS@Home an opportunity for your student to continue to practice important skills that are vertically aligned across grade levels, have success in completing the activities, and provide opportunities for families to have some fun in the process.
LDMS is here for every one of you. As a neighborhood school, we are here to serve you and your family. Please contact one of the campus administrators or one of your child’s teachers for any need your family may have during this unprecedented time.
Please provide your child an air hug from us to them and let them know they are loved and missed!
